The name Leida ranked 4044th in popularity for females of all ages in a sample of the 1990 US Census.

According to Greek mythology, Leda was a queen of Sparta. She was visited by Zeus in the form of a swan, and subsequently gave birth to two pairs of twins.
The male pair were Castor and Pollux, whose temple would grace the Roman forum as a symbol of brotherly devotion. The female pair were Clytemnestra, wife and murderer of Agamemnon, and Helen of Troy, whose beauty led to the Trojan War.
